TEA

ANYONE FOR TEA? My, my, this week’s Top 10 chart combining overall label marketshare and track-equivalent numbers looks quite different from the new-release chart we ran yesterday in this space. For starters, Roc Nation, which holds the #3 slot on the new-release side after coming out of nowhere to top last week’s chart, is nowhere to be found—mainly because “Holy Grail” hasn’t kicked in to boost the Jay Z total. Meanwhile, IGA, #6 in new-release share, dominates the TEA competition, thanks in large measure to Imagine Dragons, who keep breathing sales fire, week after week.  Night Visions tallied another 26.4k, putting it at #7, while “Radioactive” moved 173k (equaling 17.3k albums). And lest we forget (as if such a thing were even possible this summer), Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” just keeps bumping and grinding along, tossing the equivalent of 34k LPs into the Iovine/Janick/Berman hopper. And in the absence of a blockbuster debut, that combo will generally get you the W. (7/25a)
